Indian Education for All

To Support: A series of professional development activities for Montana school teachers on the history and culture of the Nakona and Dakota people.

This project will utilize the resources collected over the past two years in the development of an extensive bibliography, a complete writing of the history of the Nakona and Dakota people, utilizing historical documents and materials specific to these tribes of the Fort Peck Indian Reservation. The history of the Nakona (Assiniboine) and Dakota (Sioux) will be presented for the first time to public school teachers, staff, parents, and community members, tribal college students and non-humanities faculty, by the humanities faculty and visiting scholars of Fort Peck Community College. This project will create opportunities for faculty members in the humanities division to study together while improving their compacity to teach the humanities, and to be able to share their knowledge with other faculty members that teach in other disciplines. It will fund visiting scholars with extensive knowledge of the Nakona and Dakota people, as guest speakers and workshop leaders.
